Tel Rumeida, yesterday. A settler named Bleicher tries to cross the Palestinian-owned land,. The path is used by the military as a way to safety, but not allowed for use by settlers. Bleicher gets angry and starts to cut the fence. The army declared the area closed to Israelis. Bleicher will not leave until the soldiers would open a way for his vehicle to pass Again we realize that we are all working for the settlers.


On October 20th in al-Khalil (Hebron) Hashem Azzeh, a Palestinian man
living in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood was able to successfully harvest
his olives, on a certain part of his land, for the first time in 14

Yesterday, soldiers briefly detained a developmentally disabled
Palestinian boy, who is under the age of criminal responsibility, on
suspicion that he had thrown stones. The boy, A. a-Rajbi, (full name
withheld in interest of privacy) who will be 12 in a month, was detained
after Palestinian children threw stones at soldiers on the main road of
the Jabel Johar neighborhood in Hebron, close to the settlement of
Kiryat Arba. A-Rajbi was handcuffed, blindfolded, and held on the floor
of an army jeep for some 15 minutes until his father arrived and
convinced the soldiers to release his son, who is mentally disabled and
cannot speak.

In the video footage, filmed by B’Tselem volunteer
Samih Da’na from his window, soldiers are seen holding the boy,
handcuffing him, blindfolding him and closing him in the jeep, despite
cries by Palestinian residents that the boy is mentally disabled. The
footage also shows settlers from Kiryat Arba, watching the incident from
behind the settlement’s fence. Some are seen calling out encouragement
to the soldiers, including several racist remarks.

Around 30 settlers came this Saturday morning in the land
of Abu
Imad Knebi in Tel Rumeda, Hebron, to destroy the fence that he is
building. This fence is supposed to protect his land and his olives
trees from settlers attacks. It took him 5 years to get the permit from
Israel Civil Administration to build the fence. Now, he has the
authorization but since he started the works few weeks ago he suffered
repeatedly from new settlers attacks. It happened under the eyes of the
police and the soldiers, who neither this morning prevented the settlers
to damage Abu Imad Knebi fence
